If you say the file exists then get the output from the folling:-

ls -l /etx/resolve.conf

The tab completion advice is VERY useful for both the resolv.conf file AND the system-config-network tool, you'd not be able to get either of these wrong if you used tab completion.
I was trying to replicate your point even though you misjudged the spelling or should I reitterate - syntax of commands is correct that's why the error codes.

I typed it all again this morning using shell from desktop so it defo was not user error but something else.

I've contacted red hat as this may have been me at error but it took hours to research and it seems stuff hasn't been installed but it gets installed with the dektop version.

Please don't misunderstand me as I am greatful for the help and all advice is appreciated.

Just to make certain I typed it into CLI with correct syntax just my typing on the bloody forum has been off as syntaxed code is not always correct english spelling an I appolagise for that, I'll try and make more spelling mistakes on the forum lol

WTF? We don't know "WTF" it is, as you're not telling us exactly what you're doing. It will not have said "permission not allowed", as that's not an error message I've ever seen... You're running this in a terminal right? so copy and paste the actual text from the terminal.

Oh... hang on... your "running" /etc/resolv.conf? that's a text file, not a program, you can't "run" a text file... is that the issue we're getting lost on? You would use an editor, like vi.

Hi Chris,

Are you not reading the posts my friend - just seeing bits u want to see and commenting as you wish.

If you read properly you will find after an install of desktop everything works fine - net connectivity, pings, editing docs using vi etc.
However in my initial install at bash bare errors at correct syntax with correct instantiation.

The 'WTF' was about the post regarding 'etx....resolve.conf' and I did ask if it was just a typo or is that a command to call the file.

I find that using bash was problematic as stuff that should have been installed is unavailable and I don't know how many years you have been doing this but you may know about it.

(Thanks)
